Promsvyazbank (PSB) announced Friday its chairman of the board, Artem Konstandyan, was ranked No. 17 in a list of top influential financiers for 2014.
In this year's rating compiled by Bankir.ru, Konstandyan rose 12 places from the previous quarter. Under Konstandyan's leadership, PSB used a strong sense of self-governance and risk-avoiding tendencies in 2014 to thrive despite the troubled Russian economic climate. Earlier this month, the bank announced its credit rating had been placed at AA+ from the National Rating Agency.
The website's rating took into consideration a number of quantitative factors and was advised by top experts including financial journalists, media and communication professionals, and financial experts. The website also took into consideration media presence from top outlets in the country.
